Uploaded on Tuesday 11 February 2014


We Will Riot is a film directed by Romas Zabarauskas. The main story focuses on Luke, an up-and-coming DJ from an affluent New York family with a Lithuanian father and an African-American mother. When Luke hears from an estranged grandmother in Lithuania, he defies his parents and decides to visit this far-away country, flying straight to the capital city Vilnius. He falls in love with the city, a rebellious girl called Marta, and the local music scene - the beatmakers - promoted by an aggressive gay manager, Andy.
Luke's grandma's connections get him a deal with the municipality to become the manager of a new nightclub, and he takes up the challenge... but the deal turns out to be poisoned, forcing Luke to rebel in ways he never imagined.
WE WILL RIOT portrays the innovative Lithuanian beatmaking scene alongside the shady dealings of corrupt governments. Music production and spontaneous political protest explode together onscreen, fuelled by the internet and access to new technology in Eastern Europe.
